Health Care "Reforms" To Avoid

John Goodman explains why lawmakers should avoid these false "solutions" to the health care issue. Examples include:
Entitlement Creep
1. Do not turn a tax subsidy for health care into an entitlement.

Coverage, Benefit Mandates
2. Avoid mandated insurance coverage and mandated benefits.

Perverse Incentives
3. Don't create perverse incentives for health plans.

Crowding Out
4. Don't encourage people to forgo private coverage by expanding public coverage.
